Cowed

Some of us live under the weight of intimidation. Though we are free thinkers we cower at the behest of others. If we are afraid to act because we fear retaliation then we have co-opted-ourselves into becoming co-conspirators. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Insanity

Belief in superiority and the right to dominate and rule is ludicrous and insane.  We are all one whether we choose to accept it or not.  No one wants to live in a war zone, not knowing when their door might be kicked in, and people with guns blazing put an end to their life.   […]

Trials
